¡¡Starlit Sky¡¤Universe
¡¡¡ª¡ªSelected Art Exhibition of Suzhou Embroidery during The Dynamic Solar ¡¡Corona Symposium

¡¡Look up at the starlit sky, brilliant stars always present humankind the mysterious and harmonious picture of universe by their extraordinary magnificence and tranquility. Gorgeous starlit sky, beautiful Milky Way Galaxy, colorful and charming extragalactic nebula, etc., the superb pictures observed by modern telescope deeply excite our minds.

¡¡Suzhou Embroidery has a history of more than 2,000 years. The art is nimble in stitch, exquisite in work, vivid in image, even and smooth in skill. For a long time, the themes of Suzhou Embroidery have always been concentrated on figures, mountains and rivers, creatures and landscapes, nobody has ever related the theme to gorgeous heavenly bodies. Applying the rich and unique stitch of Suzhou Embroidery to manifest the form, organization, color and delicate structure of heavenly bodies is not only an innovation in art, but also an innovation in the choice of theme.
Goethe once said, ¡°Only by taking science as art can we acqurie complete knowledge from science. And only by artistic way of thinking can we have a deeper understanding of scientific principles ,and in consequence, a deeper discovery.¡±
Tsung-Dao Lee has a famous saying, ¡°Science and art are the two sides of a coin. Both of them appear simutaneously along with humankind and are communicated with each other along with the existence of humankind.¡±

¡¡To apply the traditional art of Suzhou Embroidery to reappear the mystery and magnificence of heavenly bodies in universe is to intergrate the two sides of the coin harmoniously into one part. The art of Suzhou Embroidery reenergized with profound scientific and cultural connotation is being put forward into a world platform, a universe platform.?

¡¡The exhibition is solemnly dedicated to 2009 International Year of Astronomy.
